Updates and downgrades
My camera has decided it needs a break.
Its protests come in the form of noise, focus problems and exposure maladies.
It's almost like the surprise of film without the happy results.
More than slightly disappointing.
There's only a few days left before I conclude my 365 project ...
And I don't suppose Santa will be hitting up the Nikon elves on my behalf this Christmas, but there may be enough for a couple of rolls of film and brief return to the analog days.
I've been missing film almost as much as I've been missing life before Internets.
Last weekend I turned off the phone. Barely touched the computer. And the world didn't spin off its axis. It was a relief, really.
There's something about imposing goals (on something you like to do) and trying to meet them (in a to-the-letter sort of way) ... It sucks the joy right out of it.
I'll finish the project, but I'll likely be phoning it in.
